FarmTable Kitchen began as a small-plate beer-and-wine-only bar, no reservations, then added a ticketed prix-fixe, multi-course tasting menu, dining room. St. Petersburg residents pushed back — they wanted a full menu, reservations, a full bar. Mina and partner Don Pintabona obliged.
This restaurant is located in the downtown St. Petersburg area, just a few blocks from Beach Drive and inside a newer outdoor mall. The downstairs area of the space is dedicated to a market. From the second you enter you encounter delicious looking food and tremendous smells. The restaurant itself is located above the market and it is a very modern and chic space.
The decor makes it feel like you are located inside a working industrial kitchen. From the second you enter you encounter delicious looking food and tremendous smells. In addition to a standard sandwich station and meat counter, the store area had a poke station, ramen bar, and a dozen other hot food areas.
